“The Summer of Love”: A One-Day Countercultural Event in Celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Summer of 1967
Queen’s University Belfast, 28 July 2017

The Summer of Love was not simply an American phenomenon but an occurrence with international and intercultural influence and significant social and political effects, transforming the ways in which the counterculture, intergenerational relationships, class, gender, and race are understood. Thousands of young people ventured to the Bay Area, particularly the Haight-Ashbury district. The media’s coverage of the influx of students, hippies, and others considered part of the “counterculture” drew national and international attention.

QUB presents a day of art and counter culture readings with an early afternoon lunch buffet,
followed by a special screening at Queen’s Film Theatre and an evening of 1960s and 70s music
and entertainment at The Parlour.

Register by June 1st and pay less than £5.00 for the entire day’s events.
